    Default Help! Centrifugal fans, any info?

    Hi all.
    I'm thinking off building a cruising craft and I'd like to do some stuff a little differently. Does anyone have any experience of the manufacture and use of centrifugal fans? Seem to be a bit of a black art. I've picked up snippets of info online but a little bit of info can be a dangerous thing!! Can anyone help at all?
    Many thanks
    Karl

    Hi

    There's been a number of threads on this recently:

    Also - a quick search reveals dozens of 'hits' in the online magazine archive - there'll be tons of info there.

    Cheers

    Hi!
    Thanks for your help! Upon reading a few posts it seems it isn't such a great idea to use centrifugal fans. At least axial fans are easier to obtain. Anyone ever come across a Tesla turbine at all?
